29th Annual Gingerbread House Exhibit

Discover Portsmouth Center

10 Middle Street
Portsmouth, NH 03801
USA

The 29th Annual Gingerbread House Contest is a feature of Vintage Christmas in Portsmouth, the city-wide, month-long celebration anchored by The Music Hall and Strawbery Banke Museum.

Created by local businesses, artists, families and kids, the gingerbread houses will be nestled into a winter wonderland in the first floor gallery surrounded by large format photographs: David J. Murray’s images of Vintage Christmas in Portsmouth and photographs of trains in New Hampshire winters by Andy Dolph. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

Judges’ winning selections will be announced at the December 6th Kickoff Party. Visitors to the exhibit can vote for the People’s Choice Awards in five categories: “Best in Show,” “Most Creative Building Materials,” “Most Attention to Detail,” “Most Whimsical” and “Best Professional.”

Come see these magical creations and find holiday gifts in the Museum Shop! According to Robin Albert, Welcome Center Coordinator, who is overseeing the exhibit, “We are gearing up for what has become a wonderful tradition. Both past participants and newcomers are encouraged to enter, so get your family and friends and co-workers together and craft your own beautiful creation!”

The exhibition will open Friday, December 6, from 5-8pm, and run through December 22, from 9:30-5 pm daily. The exhibition will also be open until 6pm on Friday, December 13 and Friday, December 20.
